Over the weekend, the Weatherford Christian School Lady Lions participated in the Trinity Christian Tournament.

In the first round against Trinity Christian, WCS suffered a disappointing loss in two sets 6-25, 12-25. Later that day, Weatherford Christian had to regroup and face Temple Christian. The Lady Lions turned it around and beat Temple in two sets 25-16, 25-13.

Senior Kennedy Combs had 8 kills and 1 block. Senior Ashleigh Garvin had 8 assists and sophomore Kaitlyn Fell contributed with 3 kills and 1 block.

“I am proud of the girls,” said Coach Tim Barton. “We are learning to utilize every ball and attack more strategically.”

On Saturday, the Lady Lions played their final game of the tournament against the Fort Worth Hill School. WCS cruised to a victory in the first set, 25-17, but had to come back to win the second set, 25-23. The team finished as the consolation winner of the tournament.

Combs was solid with 5 aces and 5 kills. Garvin had 8 assists and junior Paige Hunn added 4 digs.

“We had a dominant first set,” said Coach Debby Steensma. “The girls had good communication and Kennedy’s hitting was dead on. In the second set, we needed to get focused again. They battled back and won the game.”
